I have a thread that I started a few months back called the TTCers. Always love new faces as people get their BFP's the numbers lower. I'm currently on cycle #13. Some threads are like a swirling vortex and you kind of have to just jump in.
Cntrygrl, what part of NY do you live in? I live upstate. The sort of upstate where there's almost NO more state I'd love to join your thread if I can
I live about an hour North of Albany. I'd gladly take more joiners if you can't find it you should be able to search for it by my name.
My story: Was due for depo Nov 15th, but didn't get it so it could start wearing off. I'm hoping to be officially TTC in Jan. Dec has been kind of a NTNP month. We just happened to around OV so now I'm in my 2ww, but Dec could turn out to be like Nov with no AF.
I wanted to get in two cycles before TTC so I could get an idea of my time frames (mostly like to OV, AF, etc) but because of Depo my body isn't ready to cooperate I guess. And I don't want to put off TTC any longer...I'm ready! lol
Never was interested in having kids, my plan was to be on the depo injection until menopause (I'm 38), happy with no periods etc as it suited my lifestyle and job. But then, I met & fell in love with the man of my dreams. Well I met him last year and we got together in June. I'd just had an injection in June when he told me, he wanted to be a daddy. So I decided to why not, I'm ready to be a mummy.
My injection's 12 weeks was up at the end of August. I'm waiting for my body to settle down, hormones are all over the place, going from rage, to crying and hornyness. The poor man doesn't know what has hit him at the moment. I have no regular cycle but I know its early days and it will take time for the depo to be out of me completely, I was on it nine years. I'm trying to be patient, but I'm not and want to be pg now.
WOW ladies!! Didn’t think this thread would take off like it has. Great that we have all found a place to share our stories!
Faithhopelov3 – I can see the line now that Im on the computer!! Have you tested again?? Ltruns33 – We haven’t told people either. And I am getting very tired of hearing everyone else’s “happy news”! (also, many people use the ‘thanks’ button as a ‘like’ button) HWPG – wow, you’ve been through a hard time. It must have been heart breaking to go from ttc to breaking up Im glad to hear you are back in a positive place now. Esmerelda- It amazing how falling in love can change your out-look on life
AFM: Im 26, OH is 34. I have PCOS, ttc since August this year. Cycles are ALL OVER THE PLACE
Im on Metformin the last month, and we had our first specialist appointment on friday. She has given me tabs to bring AF on (Im currently on cd51) and I start clomid on cd2. bloods cd2 and cd21 also.
My main problem right now is that I had spotting yesterday and today, but not what I would call a period, so Im not sure what to label cd1. I think Im going to wait until I get a proper flow, and if that doesnt happen ill take the tabs she gave me to bring the period on.
I hate the messing around. all I want is normal cycles so I can have a little baby in my belly. I had notions of announcing it to our families christmas day. That obviously wont happen now, but I'd settle for a bfp new years eve!!
I love how the thread has taken off. I might add a test list to the front page if anyones interested? Il start with my own...
Well ladies, since we are all new on here we can all be ttc buddies! I don't think anyone does it on purpose, some of them have been on for a few months and have gotten to know each other! We are all on here for the same reason! But I am always looking for a ttc buddy! Especially since a lot of my friends have kids already!
I wish this was like Facebook where you could "like" things! I feel like the original poster says, and a few others but this is the most accurate (snd optimistic) reply. I do feel Like some threads are "exclusive" but i don't know! obviously you brought up a good topic bc we all seem to agree to some extent! anyways! Im glad i hot on here..its like such a good way to talk/vent/search info. Its so hard talking about ttc since a.) we havent told anyime we are trying bc we didnt think it woukd take time and b.) bc pregnant people and babies seem to be popping up like weeds all around me! How long have you all been ttc? I have been trying for 8 months- 3 of which not very hard- but still seems like a long time!
A friend of mine didn't start ovulating until 8 months after she stopped BC. Where you on BC for a long time? Have you been doing OPK's?
Hubby and I decided in September to NTNP, so I got off the pill which sucked cause I had withdrawal bleeding from stopping it like a week after my real period. This month was our first REAL month of trying..with OPK's and all of that. I have learned so much from being on this forum.
I am currently 6-7 DPO and I am so anxious to test! But part of me wants to wait and see if AF comes. For all of you that have been trying for awhile, do you usually test? Or do you wait for AF? I don't know what will be more disappointing...a BFN or the stupid
I am feeling invisible right now and I need some advice. I took an hpt yesterday and got the lightest positive..it looks like a strip of tape thats how light it is. Anyway I cant post a pic so to check my eyesight I showed dh who immediately said yeah I see a line..then this morn I took one again and it was negative. Completely negative, whats going on?!? I am due tomorrow or the next day. All I have noticed this month was an achy lower back and my bbs got tender later in dpo and that has never happened. They start hurting immediately after O and taper off a couple days before af. Is this a chemical? Should I just wait a couple more days. Im really confused.
Thanks to anyone who can offer advice xox seems I had more symptoms when I wasnt pg last month
If one test was too diluted (drank too much water etc) it can be a false negative. You have might such a small amount of hormone in your urine right now for it to be a full on positive! I would wait a few days (if you are patient enough!) and take another one! Good luck!
Now thats a thought..my urine def was less concentrated cuz I barely had any sleep and was drinking right up until I closed my eyes i usually have to pee so bad in the morn but thats when i get proper amounts of sleep. Thanks!!! Ok i am going to try to wait until sunday. Xoxox thanks to everyone for their encouragement advice and support i dunno what id do without you all while ttc
Sorry if you said it before, but how many DPO are you?
